at this point especially after -- >> no. >> after doug was suggesting the sequester somehow went away? how do you do that? how do you get these guys to do budget process that they really mean, that anybody believes they mean? >> at the concord coalition the way we view this you have to create a lot of public sentiment for this kind of discipline. you have to make it clear to the public that this is not something we can sit around quietly for and hope for. and yes, you're right, that you have every right to be cynical about my optimistic view and yet i think that, it is hard to do good tax reform. it is time-consuming. it is hard to do entitlement reform. we're not going to want to rush into anything. and yet, we have to create some boundaries because what has been happening, for the past decade, or over a decade, has been that deficit financing is the easiest thing to do. it seems free to people and you think until we hold congress to budget constraints and unless, until the american people hold the congress to the budget constraints that are necessary, we're not going to make progress. so th

that is particularly important in cases like that. the other thing that doug mentioned, and the question was where do you get your information? thinking about the impact that the attorneys general can have on your industry and all industry in the country, then privacy initiative is fascinating to me because i was just in silicon valley on the bp case, and i took the time while there to meet with general councils from facebook, google, and apple, and other countries to educate myself on what the trends in this industry are because information technology world is going to be driving our entire economy in ways we can't understand now. ewe can tell from doug's niche titch what they look at is going to be significant for all industry. privacy is one part of it, but given the active nature of the current administration, that's just a perfectly ripe area for a tremendous amount of litigation and regulation to break out. i want to make sure i understand it, and i hope you guys will take general up on his invitation to participate in that effort because initiatives coming from the national ag's association ca

will consist of steve bailey who is a member of the partners and dr. doug holtz-eakin of the american action for them. with that i think we will just take a second to get everyone here miced. >> [inaudible conversations] >> well, thank you for joining us. we have a lot of things to talk about. a lot of things came up in the last panel. we talked the last panel a lot about 2013 and what's going to happen, but i want to go back to the end of the year. you know, what do you both feel like is likely to happen then, and what are some areas you can see a compromise happening? do you want to start? >> sure. i think it's important to recognize there really are three different issues involved, and the first is literally the fiscal cliff, the end of the year tax increases on spending cuts the will happen on autopilot which i view as a threat to the economy. we have a very weak economy that's moving sideways at the moment at best, and that issue is going to face in the lame-duck. there's also the debt limit. my own view is you should keep the debt limit as far away from the fiscal cliff as you can. the

doug says about the defense spending. the sequester i don't think that you were in the room for that as far as i can tell and a was an interesting story to tell and as someone could go back and just do a google's search for the number of republican leaders that stood up for the sequestered. no one thinks it should come into effect. it was never supposed to come into effect and quite frankly the vice presidential candidate congressman ryan supported this and the budget control and the cuts are so devastating that he would also agree the fiscal strength is probably important abroad as well and economic strength, and i don't know how an additional $2 trillion in spending on defense that is on paid for with of the additional assets that you are talking about that no one in the pentagon has asked for except for perhaps the four advisers that do not serve on the campaign. the amazing things to take a number and then build it, a builder can pan around it instead of designing a strategy of which you build the defense philosophy around that. >> first on iran, mr. romney actually beli

to actually happen then, and what are some areas where you can see a comprise happening? >> doug, you want to start? >> sure. i think it's important to recognize that really three different issues involved, and the first is the literally the fiscal cliff. the end of the tax increases and spending cuts that will happen on auto pilot. which i view as a tremendous threat to the economy. it's a recipe for recession. we have a weak economy that is moving side ways a the moment at best. and that's the issue we're going to face in the lame duck. that's the debt limit. it's going to be a february, administer issue. my own view you should keep it as far away from the fiscal cliff you can. there's nothing good that comes of intermixing the two. the third, the deal. which is we have to have a deal for the fundamental tax reforms and entitlement reforms so we have a debt burden sustainable for the future and -- we don't have that. so the lame duke, just focus on those. you shouldn't intermix the debt ceiling and pretended you're going get a deal. i think that's a mistake. and the whole job of the fisc

harassed by lawsuits when you did nothing wrong. >> mayor, i'm state representative doug miller from texas. thank you for your compliment. i appreciate that. [laughter] we have been working hard and we continue to and that's one of the reason i'm here today. i think another issue that you didn't address but i'd like to hear your comments on is that this election also is two different directions on whether we're going to allow -- i know i have several of my colleagues that from other states that are state legislators here but the direction of where we're going to allow a states to have their rights versus a stronger centralized federally government which we see all over the world does not work. in a number of cases, i'd like to hear your comment on state right v versus federal right. >> i think you're right. if president obama is elected there's more concentration of power in washington. obamacare is a massive concentration of power in washington. all of the new regulations, dodd-frank, dodd-frank has to be one of the great ironies that it's named dodd-frank since it's named for the two peo
